Country music star collapses onstage

COUNTRY music star Tim McGraw has collapsed on stage during a performance in Ireland.

Rolling Stone magazine reports that McGraw collapsed while performing on Sunday night in Dublin.

McGraw's wife, the singer Faith Hill was also set to perform at the 3Arena, but made the decision to cut her husband's gig short in the interests of his health.

Hill can be seen in a video on a fan's Instagram page saying, "He's been super dehydrated. I apologise, but I made the decision that he cannot come back out on stage."

 

Hill then performed the song What A Friend We Have In Jesus and wrapped up the show.

According to the New York Post's Page Six, a representative for McGraw issued a statement saying McGraw was attended to by local medical staff on-site and will be fine.
